To minimise the risks of Covid-19 spread, as of 21/03/20, UKBTR have taken the following steps:
- The suspension of dog assessments, homechecks and transport runs
- The suspension of adoptions; all current dogs in the rescue (except for one as of today-even this may change) to remain in foster until further notice
- Altered our surrender policy to reflect the current situation and advice, with dogs coming into rescue to be considered on a case by case basis and subject to an appropriate risk assessment
- Appealed for those who have been previously homechecked by us to offer emergency services (i.e fostering)
UKBTR are supporting social distancing and isolation as appropriate and are therefore trying to reduce face to face contact to the absolute minimum.
